Flight Of The Conchords star Jemaine Clement is to play the villain in Men In Black 3D.

The New Zealander - famous for his musical antics in the hit HBO comedy show with bandmate Bret McKenzie - will play alien Yaz, the part Sacha Baron Cohen was rumoured to be in talks for, and nemesis to the Men In Black, Deadline Hollywood reveals.

Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin have signed up to star as the alien-fighting secret agents in the movie directed by Barry Sonnenfeld.

Tropic Thunder's Etan Cohen is scripting the sci-fi comedy.

The 1997 Men In Black, featuring Will and Tommy as special agents in charge of the world's alien inhabitants, took nearly 600 million dollars at the global box office, while its 2002 sequel raked in 440 million dollars.
